@msw7+Got my laser cutting certification at the local maker space
@J_cordz7+Today I had my Calculus Exam and it went great! All the study hours were worth it! :quad_parrot: Also today r/place ended, and although we couldn't keep the Hack Club logo :hack-club: on the canvas it as a nice and fun experience! And that's a very cool memory to keep :D 🗃️ 🚗 Also I finished the main part of my website content, so coding is a priority for it again! And started customizing the Stats Bar for my Macbook Air :macbook-air-space-gray-screen: as part of my rice in progress! 🌾
@Skyascii0Just finished this really cool game called Lifeline, a sort of a space themed CYOA game. It was just as good as I played it a few years ago, would totally recommend it.
@jasonaa0wrote a little script to switch a bunch of my repos to pnpm because im running out of space 👀
src is here if anyone’s curious, also wrote a little thing that makes it easier for me to use pnpm with other projects that don’t use pnpm, although it doesn’t handle adding new dependencies at all
@J_cordz7+Today I kept studying for my college application exams so I didn't had time to work on anything else, so here's a space picture taken by the Hubble telescope. It's the *"Pillars of Creation"* an interstellar matter form on the Eagle Nebula or Messier "16" object. I think I'll try to make a side project about space after I finish the rest of my current projects!
@J_cordz7+Today I started customizing the shell prompt of my terminal with Starship, added some useful CLI tools and finally started to work on my next workshop! I will leave my MacOS Yabai Tiling Window setup for a while, and will continue to work on that after getting to learn more things of Zsh, which I don't think will get too complicated for me because I know Bash.
@Ishan0Today was such an insane day omg omg
I flew an RC airplane for the first time in a relatively small field which made the experience so scary omg omg
I visited the famous Seattle Space Needle which was surprisingly built in the 1960s. Also they had very cool glass art
Idk why the italics are still on dammit slack mobile but today I also played the ukulele a bit:eggsdee:I don’t actually know how to play it so I was just plucking strings in a pattern like on zephyr:ukulele-ishan:I also configured my new Mac so now it has a perfectly configured terminal and a custom Firefox theme and a lot of other essential utils and apps and I did my history homework on it
Oh and I also went to beechers which has epic Mac and Cheese (the worlds best apparently) and lasagna.
Oh and my cousin is visiting us, this was his first full day here.I’ll send my epic and very scary rc plane maiden and a photo of the plane
@deven0So today I decided I’ll post on scrapbook everyday, hoping to make a 2 month streak :D
Had a kinda unproductive day- did some stat on Khan academy, completed some assignments, wrote a discursive essay on expenditure in space exploration and read most parts of a 700 page book on international customs procedures to help understand why parcels sent to India don’t reach on time
@maggie1dragons are cool! this is a dragon curve, a space filling curve with fractal dimension 2
@Jeffrey0🚢 🦅 🌺
I finally finished my Eagle Project! it took a total of 5 work days for around 3-6 hours each with help from some other scouts in my troop. When I started I was worried I wasn't going to finish it in time for the fair starting on the 18th of June but it went way faster than I expected!
The project was rebuilding and cleaning up the old planter for the local county fairgrounds. I've attached a few pictures of the stages and you can see how worn down it looked at first. All of the materials were directly donated except for the gravel for drainage behind the wall.
• The bricks were donated by two families who no longer wanted them. We just had to go remove them from their yards.
• The mulch was donated by a local recycling/landscaping company who wanted to help out and have their sign displayed for the fair.
• The new plants were donated by the master gardeners at the nearby Purdue Extension building. They needed to clear some space in their own garden, so they donated some plants they didn't need anymore.
Overall the project went much quicker and smoother than I expected it to. I'm really excited with how nice it turned out! All the plants are perennials, so it should look even better in the years to come!
@Ishan0YOOOOOOOOOOO I JUST LAUNCHED DEVZAT ON PRODUCT HUNT! As you all know by now, it's chat but over ssh and it has Twitter updates and a slack bridge at #ssh-chat-bridge and markdown support and devbot and even chat rooms and syntax highlighting for code and tic tac toe and hangman builtin and timezone and all sorts of fun stuff! AND IT'S ALL OVER YOUR TERMINAL. Go smash that upvote button! www.producthunt.com/posts/devzat
DEVZAT IS NUMBER 3 ON PRODUCT HUNT WORLDWIDE :producthunt:
@karolina0It's week 3 (I think) for me in Qoom's Creator Group Spring Cohort!
For my Qoom project, I'm creating Partix, a visual representation of micro-particle pollution levels worldwide. I touched up the particle animation today, and this week I'll work on adding a dropdown to choose a city, as well as to start building a database of cities and pollution levels.
Keep up with my progress at: karolina.qoom.space/~/partix
@prithul02180Yesterday at the field. My new RC airplane build, the Mitsubishi Zero was too tail heavy to fly well.
Used a screw driver to make it nose heavy as a desperate measure.
@taylorleehackclub0Attending Config 2021 Day 1 - "Figma is a space for everything and anything"
Key takeaways from this awesome talk by @/ace
Figma is a...
• sketchbook - learn by doing 📝
• a playground - thoughtful chaos :artist:
• home - comfort and purpose 🏡
• studio - bringing something to life ✨
• classroom - learning by teaching 💬
1. Master the toolbox :toolbox:
2. Get others involved 😎
3. Use what you make :figma:
@Skye0Yup yup. A new github space for my club! I hope the other board members will accept my invite soon...
Oh and feel free to join here: github.com/FLHS-Hacks
@Skye0Started a second github repo for my own workshops for my new club. I had other project ideas than Hack Club's workshops. I'm allowed to do this right?
@christina6950finally debugged my spinning wheel (an extra space was causing all my design issues!!!) and it's finished! Thanks @dwivedihari987 - i loved this workshop
@Chris0I did some c++ and watch the last falcon 9 lunch of this year,
@karolina0Day 4 - I published my first article on Medium! It's about what evidence of humanity may be discoverable by other intelligent life forms, and what remnants of our civilization will define us after we're gone. You can read the article here! 👽
@itsmingjie0I think this is ship-worthy!!! This is the biggest overkill in the history of overkill: I built a full-fledged platform for Jeopardy-style virtual puzzle hunts (can also be used for CTFs) in 4 months, and I finished today! It's built on top of Node.js, PostgreSQL, Redis, caches information locally, and pulls competition puzzles from Airtable for easy modifications. It also comes with a companion standalone announcement/alert system for real-time communication with your competition attendees.
First run of it will be in a few weeks at a <https://integirls.org/puzzle|puzzle hunt> run for middle/high school female/nb students (you should signup if you are eligible!) Still figuring out how to deploy everything across multiple servers so students from around the world would have no trouble using the platform, but that won't take long!
Code is very rushed, but it's completely open-source github.com/itsmingjie/infinity.
@sampoder0Today I ran what I called the "The Great Race Across Singapore" with my Student Council friends as a team building activity! How it worked that there were teams placed in secret locations and they had to go through a series of challenges to reach the "final location" on the other side of the island which was the Merlion in Marina Bay but they didn't know that.
Here's how it worked:
Each team had 4 council members and one council leader. The council members were each given a store number that they had to go to in he Yishun Mall. Then the council leaders were all separated from their team together at Yishun Station. To come together they need to communicate through their location with only emoji.
Then once they have met, they receive a cryptic message: My name is TRY***PA, call me maybe? . When they type this word into their phone, it will call me. I then read out the following message: 1°21'53.2"N 103°50'27.8"E, but bigger.
If you head to 1°21'53.2"N 103°50'27.8"E, you will yourself in a random carpark in Ang Mo Kio (Singaporean outskirt-ish suburb, very residential). But what is special about this random carpark, is that it is the site of a small Merlion statue pictured below (where you wouldn't really expect one, they're rare). And remember we wanted "bigger". So they now have to travel down to the main Merlion statue in Marina Bay racing against each other. On the way they had some fun tasks as well such as taking selfies, learning more about each other!
First one there wins the race!!!! It went pretty well on the delay and despite some early hiccups the Academics Department team put their minds to it and won the race! How the completely skipped going into AMK by just use Google Street View 🤣 Diego got a big brain!!
Here's a photo of the winning team and that infamous mini merlion as well some screenshots from Sherlock Holmes my alt account on Slack plus a make do TikTok that me and Anjali (VP) made coz neither of us have TikTok lol
really nice to have some fun!
@matt0Finally finished setting up my new macOS instance! Crazy how much space I saved. I was using ~750GB on my last instance now I am only using ~120GB with everything installed!
@anthonykung0Well, finally got my dad to let me buy a 4K TV :yay: just gonna need to make some space for it :thonk: let's hope it survive my GTA driving skills 🤣 which brings me to this meme :fb-laugh:
@lachlanjc0Made a bunch of upgrades to :scrappy: Scrapbook! Text parsing is much better & handles cases like punctuation following @ mentions, handles edge cases like posts starting with colons, emoji parsing is better, and images now load noticeably faster due to proxying + caching (with HTTP/2 + fewer DNS lookups). You can also now fully opt out of streaks, if you like: /scrappy-togglestreaks all, & they won’t show up on your profile, Slack status, or elsewhere on Scrapbook. @alchzh upgraded us to Next 9.5 & added tooltips to the contribution chart as well, so thanks! Photo from Switchyard Park, Bloomington.
@blazerunner440Launched my SOM project yesterday!! The balloon got up to 82,000 ft and I got the picture of Earth that I was after
@caleb1I'm gonna try to get @scrappy to react with as many emojis as possible, for no particular reason.
@anthonykung0OMG!!! Lost in Space Season 3 in in production!!! 😍 😍 😍
@lskaling0New pair of landing gear for the RC plane. I discovered what I was cutting was acrylic, not lexan, so I could cut it much easier on a lasercutter than router. Then I used some molds I milled from wood to heat and bend to shape.
@winston0today was pretty fun, created my first deepfake, body surfed, and worked out logistics for upcoming hackathon w @matthewvandyke08. u should search up the words down below XD
